Garlic Roasted Vegetables with Cous Cous

I know a few of my friends including myself are making an effort to eat healthier this year so I've decided to share a few of my own quick, easy and healthy recipes to help you guys out. This is one super easy to cook and prepare, and you don't have to use the vegetables I have you can use any you as like roasting much healthier than frying but still a great way to get that crunch on your veggies.

  • Cous cous
  • Garlic
  • Courgette
  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Red Pepper
  • Parsnip
  • Rice Bran Oil (you can also use olive oil I use rice bran oil as it's apparently healthier)
  • Salt & Pepper to season

Heat oven to 200°C

Peel and slice the vegetables and garlic but be sure not to slice them too thinly as they'll go mushy and burn easily when you roast them.

Place the vegetables into a roasting tin, season and drizzle with oil then place them in the oven to roast for 10 - 20 minutes.

Place your cous cous in a bowl then pour enough boiled water onto it just to cover the cous cous then cover with a plate or some cling film and leave to stand for 5 - 10 minutes.

Job done, serve and enjoy!

It's as easy as that to make a quick and healthy meal for yourself and if you're craving a bit of meat you can always add a couple of chopped up slices of bacon or pancetta to the vegetables when you roast them.

Eat & Stay Healthy
